Purple ? : The head/glans of the penis is a darker shade of pink (blue-pink or bink) than the rest of the skin. If you think its really dark purple, it suggests it is not getting a proper blood supply. If it functions normally & has no pain it suggests it is normal. If it hurts or this spooks you have it evaluated.
